After the excoriation that their APRIL FOOL’S DAY remake was met with, the Butcher Brothers are returning to familiar territory: a sequel to their well-received THE HAMILTONS.
Writer/director Ti West, who scored with both fans and critics with his last feature THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, has started rolling on his new movie for Glass Eye Pix and Dark Sky Films, THE INNKEEPERS. Some news just came down the wire about who’s starring in the flick, as well as a plot synopsis.
Each year, a horror film fresh off a festival run marked of praise and hype threatens to shake the genre community to its very core, via either shocking imagery, savage brutality or sheer originality. Last spring, Pascal Laugier’s meditation on torture in the name of spiritual enlightenment, MARTYRS, was preceded by an onslaught of buzz proclaiming, “You won’t believe what you’re about to see.” Around the time that film finally saw Stateside DVD release, the next in line in extreme cinema began screening worldwide. Now, Tom Six’s THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE) is about to hit U.S. shores and must contend with a nation of non-festivalgoers who are begging for it to live up to its reputation.

The folks over at Pulp 2.0 Press are for a limited time selling downloadable PDF's of the book for a price that will make you Scream, Blacula, Scream! Read on for more!
THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED isn’t really a horror movie, but it’s the best thing I’ve seen so far at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a good thriller, and being kept on the edge of their seat by the anticipation of plot twists and character revelations, not just violence. (General audiences will be able to see it when it goes into limited theatrical release August 6 from Anchor Bay.)
The idea of an Asian horror film called POSSESSED calls up all sorts of unpromising and generic associations, but the new Korean chiller of that title (currently playing the Tribeca Film Festival) has more to offer than the expected evil-imbued girl with long dark hair. Lee Yong-joo’s directorial debut works some intriguing wrinkles into the expected formula that give it an edge over the many previous features of its ilk.
We gave you the first look here at the poster for the After Dark Original chiller THE TASK, and now the first still from the movie has emerged, along with international one-sheets for the Original flicks FERTILE GROUND and SECONDS APART. Jump past the jump to give ’em a look.
Now she’ll really be able to crawl out of your TV! In the We’re Surprised It Took Them This Long Department, Paramount has reactivated the hit RING franchise and, since it’s up to the third installment, the next entry will be THE RING 3-D.
Anchor Bay Entertainment has released the official info and cover art for its DVD and Blu-ray of THE CRAZIES. The remake of George A. Romero’s cult favorite is set for release in both formats June 29.
This was always going to be tricky to pull off. When a sequel to perhaps the first horror film of the 21st century to likely be regarded as a classic was announced, the filmmakers basically threw themselves into their own figurative uncharted cave system, ready to be devoured by a mass of lurking genre fans. With its Stateside releases this week on Lionsgate DVD, however, the good news is that it seems they’ve been able to escape with only a few missing limbs and flesh wounds to contend with.
